Recent Updates and Currently Reading | January 21

Last week was a great reading (and blogging) week. I hope my groove lasts. I'm trying to roll with it! Australian Open Tennis started this week so my weekend will probably be filled with lots of tennis matches and binge watching Longmire on Netflix.

The Mystery Writers of America announced the Nominees for the 2017 Edgar Awards and the Horror Writers Association announced the Preliminary Ballots for the 2016 Bram Stoker Awards so be sure to check those out!

Posted Last Week


Last week I posted the following reviews:

Review Copies


The Devil Crept In by Ania Ahlborn Aletheia by J.S. Breukelaar The Final Reconciliation by Todd Keisling

The Devil Crept In by Ania Ahlborn - The Devil Crept In showed up in my mailbox this week. (Major happy dance! (salute)) I love Ania Ahlborn. I can't wait to see what she does with this one.

Aletheia by J.S. Breukelaar - The description of Aletheia has me super curious. I'm expecting some unreliable characters in this ghost story set on a lake.

The Final Reconciliation by Todd Keisling - Heavy metal horror? Yes, please. The Final Reconciliation is inspired by The King in Yellow mythos. I feel like a horrible horror reader because I have never read The King in Yellow. I will see if I can remedy that! This is also supposed to be "reminiscent of cosmic horror by H. P. Lovecraft, Laird Barron, and John Langan". Sounds good to me!

What about you? What are you reading this week? Be sure to let me know in the comments or leave me a link!

  2. Right?! Fed is going to have to beat like 5 top ten players to win this thing. We will have to send him all of our vibes!!

  4. I used to be a huge women's tennis fan when Hingis was playing. As a Swiss I obviously followed Federer but I sort of lost interest. Hope you have fun. And off to check out Longmire!

    1. I used to love women's tennis. I haven't watched much at all since Clijsters retired. I have no interest in any of the current women (unless I think they will beat Serena).

  7. Oooh The Devil Crept In sounds fantastic! I have yet to read anything by Ahlborn but I did buy Seed years back that I should probably make time for.

    1. If you are to read one Alhborn, Seed is the one to read!

  8. Lowriders in Space? That looks fun. And The Last Harvest sounds like a different YA horror- glad you liked it! Enjoy the Open. I've only watched an episode of Longmire but I liked it... I may binge it at some point.

    1. Lowriders was fun! I'll do a little mini review of it this week. The Open and Longmire is pretty much all I've done with my free time this weekend. :)

  10. You are doing great this month! January has been slower for me than anticipated. I just added Alethia and The Final Reconciliation to my TBR. They both sound pretty awesome. Longmire is awesome. We finished watching the newest season in December. I can't believe they are doing on one more year. I wanted to read the series this year but don't know how that will pan out.

    1. Thanks, Barb! Sorry things are slower for you. I hope you are doing something wonderful. I'm loving Longmire. I wondered how many seasons there will be. I may have to start reading the books once I run out of shows. :)

  12. Enjoy all those reads. I love a bit of great sport to watch too although not tennis for me. However I know it would be great.

    1. I prefer individual competition over team sports. I will watch a little bit of baseball in the upcoming season, but Tennis is my sport.

  14. Eeek Alethia sounds so creepy! I am such a weirdo. I hate to swim in lakes because I am that oddball who is always wondering what is lurking under the water. Overactive imagination. Or too much Stephen King. Remember the story The Raft? I think that did it to me. Lol.
